Friday Night Fights [Round 24]

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for a special Veteran’s Day edition of Friday Night Fights! This week’s bout is the battle of the wild blue yonder, waged between two USAF veterans with global air supremacy on the line.  Both entries were first posted in 2006 (continuing this week’s unofficial theme of decade old models), and illustrate the “whimsical” side of the valiant Airmen.  Without further preamble, let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Fighting out of the red corner, from an unmarked hangar at the Skunk Works, it’s Derek “The Action Figure” Schin and his “Aero Pirates“.

And fighting out of the blue corner, from the DARPA wind tunnels, it’s Justin “Henry” Vaughn and his “Crater Express Moonbase Taxi”

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor and determine who will receive a week’s worth of bragging rights.  Simply leave a comment below and vote for the model that best suits your individual taste. I will tally up the votes next Friday and declare a winner.

Last time, on Friday Night Fights….

It was the battle of the pumpkin patch with a bag full o’ children’s souls on the line.  In the end, Anthony “The Wolverine” Wilson and his “The Wanderer“ smashed Andrew “Chrome” Lee and his “Happy Halloween“ to the tune of a 9-6 victory.  Anthony Wilson scores his first victory (1-0) while Andrew Lee runs his record to (0-1).

I’d like to end with a shout-out to another valued Airman, Dave Manhire, who designed the banner of this august blog, and a raised glass to the vets.
